By V. V. Prasolov

This is often the English translation of the publication initially released in Russian. It includes 20 essays, every one facing a separate mathematical subject. the subjects variety from outstanding mathematical statements with fascinating proofs, to easy and powerful equipment of problem-solving, to attention-grabbing homes of polynomials, to extraordinary issues of the triangle. a few of the themes have a protracted and engaging background. the writer has lectured on them to scholars all over the world.

The essays are self sufficient of each other for the main half, and every one provides a shiny mathematical outcome that ended in present examine in quantity conception, geometry, polynomial algebra, or topology.

Gauss is mentioned several times, as one of the very rare foreigners in this report which concentrates mainly on the achievements of French scientists. , at the same time as European and as an heir and participant of French culture, is quite characteristic of the late French Enlightenment; see [Goldstein 2003]. 1. , the disciplinary status quo remained unchanged, as textbooks show. In Barlow’s treatise for instance, theoretical arithmetic, including that inherited from Gauss’s book, only serves as prolegomena to the solution of families of indeterminate equations.

But rather to the tradition of algebraic analysis. 120 In the further development of Galois theory, the parallel between the general theory and the special examples continued to be evident for a while. Enrico Betti, for example, is famous for the first systematic account of Galois’s theory in 1852 which established the model of organizing the material, with an abstract part on substitutions preceding the application to algebraic equations, see [Betti 1903], pp. 31–80. But he followed this up by a paper focused on the division and modular equations of 117.

In a letter to Schumacher (who would be the adressee of Jacobi’s first notes on elliptic functions in 1827) dated September 17, 1808, Gauss called the functions which are not reducible to circular or logarithmic functions a “magnificent 1. ”109 When Jacobi himself turned to elliptic functions,110 he first studied transformations between various elliptic integrals, rather than the immediate analogue of sec. , the division of a single elliptic integral or function.
